Gina K Designs September Inspiration DT Blog Hop - Day 3


This is the closed up portion of my sample today using GKD My True Love Gave To Me. On this sample, I used EVERY IMAGE in this set! I can honestly say, I have never done that before. How? Well, check this out:





Isn't this a fun book! I will say, it took some time to make, but I was thrilled with the end result!


And, last but not least, my final sample is made from the Buy 3 GET THIS FREE set Cool Beans.
Totally LOVE LOVE LOVE this set -- you all know (well, if you didn't, you do now) I work at Starbucks.  This set is PERFECT for my co-worker gifts this year  -- I will be making more!

To cute huh!  I bought some white bags, and will decorate those to match this cute little dotted bucket (Target clearance 50 cents-get out! I got 6) and candle.  Perfect little something gift.

That's it for me.  I had fun this month making samples for your inspiration.  I hope I gave you some ideas for little Christmas/ Hostess gifts too.
Thanks for stopping by~

What terrific projects Vicki! Your little flip book is so sweet! (I wonder if Gina is going to come up with sets for the other nights of Christmas....), and I love that sparkly plaid bow with those traditional holiday colors! And your coffee candle (I HAVE to try that technique sometime!) and gift pail are such a sweet gift set! I love the fun polka dots in the festive holiday colors and the cute coffee cup sitting in the edge of the frame like that.
